VonCrow_smallHowdy folks, Barron Von Crow here and we’re here with our Round 2 Supercoach Scouting Report.

The first round of SC is now over and done with, and I hope you’re all happy with your 1st week’s results. We’re (thankfully) done with the split rounds now, so we’re back to 9 games for the week. The Richmond VS Carlton game is on a Thursday night this week, so you’ll need to get set your side a day early if you have any players from those two teams.

Also, remember to look out for the red and green Supercoach scores, RED = bad, GREEN = good which may help you out when it comes to picking your captains for the week.

New addition to the column from now on is the “Top 10″ rankings. The top 10 scorers from each round will be listed, and assigned points based on their weekly ranking. Whoever leads the top of the list, should be the best captain choice for us to use. This, along with our week by week scouting should allow us to hopefully nail our Captain choice each and every week. Consider it the Jock Reynolds Communities version of the Brownlow Medal!

Captain Pick(s):

Cotchin and Murphy both scored well in the Elimination Final, as well as Gibbs having 2 good performances against the Tigers in 2013. Might use VC on Cotch/Murphy here, but will be staying away from Martin for sure, who doesn’t have a good record against Carlton at all.

@ Etihad Stadium Averages: 84.92 Supercoach Points, High Score of 145

 

Captain Pick(s):

Watson would be the player I’d take a serious look at here, but probably with a VC since we’ve still got other options like Ablett still to play. He was let off the chain against the Roos, but I think the Hawks will be holding him more accountable here. Hodge has been very solid against the Bombers in the previous 3 games, but a potential 110 score won’t have enough juice to satisfy us I think.

@ Etihad Stadium Averages: 76.68 Supercoach Points, High Score of 128

 

Captain Pick(s):

If you’re feeling frisky you could take a punt with a VC on Riewoldt here, who scored decently against GWS last year and also has a good average while playing at Etihad. Nothing in his form last week to suggest he’s no longer capable of putting up scores. Mumford hasn’t performed well against St Kilda previously, but may see a boost in scores while rucking against the Saints younger ruck stocks, especially after his Round 1 performance. I like him as a VC choice here, much in the same was we used Aaron Sandilands last week.

@ Adelaide Oval Averages: N/A

 

Captain Pick(s):

Will be the 1st game at Adelaide Oval for the Crows and some Port players, with Port Adelaide having played a game against Melbourne at the ground back in 2011 before the ground underwent it’s current re-development. Showdowns always have the potential for big scores; Wingard was near unstoppable against the Crows in 2013, along with Travis Boak. Dangerfield always a potential for a big score too (Scored 141 in the Rd 5, 2012 matchup). No clear cut Captain choice here, but those with Dangerfield, Westhoff and/or Wingard, a VC on one of them wouldn’t be the worst pick, especially since we still have our Ablett/Pendlebury/Selwood “safe” picks left to play this round.

@ Patersons Stadium Averages: 89.0 Supercoach Points, High Score of 107

 

Captain Pick(s):

No Sandilands on the list because he’s never actually faced off against the Gold Coast before! Ablett is always the safe pick, and there’s no reason to think he can’t continue with his previous form against Freo, with both his 185 and 157 scores coming at Patersons Stadium. Certainly looked the goods last week against Richmond and you’d be silly not to put the big C on him. He only had 28 possessions last time these teams faced, but his scores were boosted by 6 tackles and 5 Inside 50’s.

Captain Pick(s):

My guts tell me that Franklin is going to want to have a BIG game against the Pies, and he’s certainly done it in the past, but it would be a very risky pick. Hard to split Beams and Pendlebury here, with both of them having scored big points against the Swans at ANZ Stadium in the past, but it’s hard to look past Dependlebury, so stick the C on him here if he’s your best midfielder.

Captain Pick(s):

Joel Selwood is the pick of the litter (ha!) here. Stevie J is always capable of a big game as well, although it can be hard to pick when he’ll do it. Tom Rockliff had 37 possies last time he played the Cats, but he’ll miss this game through suspension, so it’s off to the bench for him, but this does allow us to use him as a Captain’s loophole if you’ve got a player from the next two games you’re willing to take a chance on as C.

Captain Pick(s):

Big Cox smashed the Dees last time they played, scoring a career high at the MCG. The Demons are a different side than last time though and the Eagles booted 27 goals (5 to Darling and Kennedy, 3 to Cox, Hams and LeCras) back in Rd 3 of 2013, which accounted for most of the high scores. Still, the Dees are thin in the big man department and Cox could definitely knock another big score out here.

Captain Pick(s):

Griffen had a field day last time these teams met, and if North’s inability to stop Watson and Heppell last week was anything to go by, then he’s in for another big one this week. Minson and Goldstein has usually been a battle, but with Goldstein perhaps carrying a shoulder injury, maybe this one will go to Minson?

 

Barron Von Crow’s Round 2 Captain Selection:

If last week was anything to go by, if you’ve got Ablett, Selwood or Watson, then there should be no hesitation on whacking the Captain on them! Could be a few smokies in the early games too, with the likes Dangerfield/Wingard/Boak and Murphy/Cotch/Deledio having the potential for 130+ scores as well. I really like Shane Mumfords chances as well and if you have him, I’d be putting a VC on him.

Personally, I’ll be going with the VC on Dangerfield with my C on Ablett. If Danger pulls off a score of 130+ then I’ll be taking the loophole by subbing Pyke for King/Derickx. Luckily the Suns/Dockers game is in Perth this week, meaning there will be time to pull the loophole with Dangerfield, even though both games technically start at 4:40pm.

And that’s our wrap up for Round 2. Which Captains and Vice Captains are you guys looking at this week? Let us know in the comment section below, or on the Twitters @BarronVonCrow

    Danger = VC, GAJ = CAPT.
    Great write up again Barron. Thank You.

    FFGENIE:
    For all those interested it is up and running again this year at ffgenie.com (with instructions)

    Cheers.

    • pieman says:

      Thanks ocker! just downloaded it. Is your working??

      • Ocker says:

        Pieman, Yes not problems if you follow the instructions. Make sure you have the latest version of Jave.

        Cheers.

    • GeneralSoreness says:

      First time trying to use FFG, keep getting an error when trying to find team by Team ID, when trying by login says cant find login form! Any ideas?

  2. Derek says:

    Great write.

    There seems to be a lot of Love for Big Mumford.

  3. Sarah says:

    Great work Barron!! Love your work.

    Think I'll do the same and put the VC on Danger with the C on Gaz.

  4. The whale says:

    I like it! However, would the top 10 be more relevant if Treloar was ranked 3rd and awarded 8 points (not 2nd and 9 points) given Watson and Selwood both out scored him?

  5. medadsson says:

    Like the look of Cox v Melbourne who really don't have anyone to compete at his level. My greatest fear is Mitchell to tag Watson. That would take two premiums out … eeeek.

  6. I know we shouldnt be doing "sideways" trades, but thoughts on trading McVeigh or Mitchell(most likely Mitchell) for Swallow?
    Can get either of those two cheaper later on

    • Ocker says:

      Cameron, They maybe cheaper later on?
      Is it worth wasting a trade or 2 to get them back in later on?
      Stick to your original choices and back your initial judgement. At least wait one more week.

      Cheers.

      • Ocker says:

        Cameron, I have both myself along with Hanley and can't see myself trading any of them. Your trades are GOLD do not waste them.

        • Thanks for the input, I think I will hold on, but dont want to wait until Swallow shoots up in price and out of range of rookie upgrades

          • theazzyg says:

            I have the feeling swallow won't have as gooder output as round 1 all year, especiall with KK to come in. So I'm gonna give him a while and maybe not go him at all.

  7. rumplestilkskin says:

    this is the best supercoach information ever!! Thank you for comments Mr Barron Von Crow.

  8. GarglesnarfFC says:

    Giants have justed tweeted that for those who have him, Josh Kelly will debut this week.

  9. THE SALTSHAKER says:

    Swan really is forgotten in SC

  10. benisbill says:

    VC Cotchin into C Pendles for mine.

    Would have been VC Cox if they weren't playing so late in the weekend.

    • Sarah says:

      Take a risk and put the C on Cox!! He scored 115 against Minson, he will smash Spencer.

      • benisbill says:

        I've no doubt the Dees will cop a hiding in the ruck – my concern is more than Nic Nat contributed nothing around the ground so they might give him more ruck time to get him into the game.

        Cox could still score well playing forward or as a loose man, but too big a captain risk with no backup plan IMO!

        • medadsson says:

          Could you not put VC on Ablett or whomever and C on Cox and play the emergency loop (non playing ruck) should Ablett or whomever smash it.

          • benisbill says:

            Hadn't even considered that actually – thanks for the suggestion!

          • benisbill says:

            Though to be honest, the issue is more that I prefer a backup option to Cox – having the VC on say, Pendlebury, means I'm effectively making a call on keeping his score rather than Cox's.

            • medadsson says:

              Both quality players,see your logic, cheers.

              • Harrison says:

                Minson to Cox? is this worth a trade or will BIG Will Minson be a stand out ruck this year? Please help don't make me fail.

                • Super_Freak says:

                  I wouldn't be too hasty on Minson. He was the number 1 ruck last year for a reason. He was also up against the West Coat rucking machine on the weekend. Give him at least 1 more week.

      • Wattsieesq says:

        I've done just that. Put the VC on GAJ and the C on Cox. I'll see how GAJ goes with Crowley and you have a day to assess if you want that score or gamble with Cox.

  11. Bailey says:

    Great article BVC! I want to hear what the community thinks on Sam Mayes. I’m trading out Charlie Dixon and he seems like a good POD. If anyone has any other suggestions I would be happy to hear. All comments welcome!

    • Super_Freak says:

      Mayes is a good player, and will probably become a great player, but I'm not sure he will score any better than Dixon atm.

  12. KadeK is a jet says:

    Hi community, great article! I would just like to ask everyone if they are trading out buddy? But the main question is should I trade out Rockliff? I am really considering it as he was played as a tagger against mitchell and he is obviously out for this week due to suspension! WHAT DO I DO? Thanks to all that help!

    • Fourbells says:

      No to trading Rockliff. He is a premium and will bounce back.

    • Super_Freak says:

      Hey KK, I wouldn't be trading out Rocky, he is a gun! He will bounce back after his 1 week sebatical.

      I'm also a little confused, I've read a few people saying Rocky was tagging Mitchell, but I think it was actually the other way around. He showed glimpses of greatness in that first quarter, but Mitchell just stuck to him like glue. Probably what prompted the swift right fist to the bread basket!

  13. Bray says:

    Hey guys just wanting your input on somthing that’s has been troubling me supercoach wise lately.

    I had decied to choose Charlie Dixon as on of my rucks, along with sandi, I was thinking of trading him out before round two begins for big sam Jacobs, and the I would also be trading out jimmy Webster for Laidler, and then the week after trade suckling out for David swallow.

    Just a thought guys, would love some feedback on this decision, although I don’t often trade in round one.

    Thanks guys

    • Fourbells says:

      The Dixon / Jacobs trade if required is OK, but would not trade out Webster for Laidler.

    • Super_Freak says:

      I'd give Dixon 1 more week, and if Swallow smashes it again this week then you should definately get him in, I will be. Agree with Fourbells, not sure Laidler is a wise trade.

    • WombatsFC says:

      Hi Bray bumma about big Charlie.
      Downtrade to Hampson he had a good score last week (98 I think) in his first game for the tigers and will absolutely humiliate the Blues rucks and defenders in his first opportunity to go up against them for real. No joke he is likely to kick 6 goals and pump out 130 this week

    • Great White says:

      Don't do any of these!!!! Webster will be fine unless out for weeks due to his injury. Suckling will make you money and be a consistent scorer for D5/6. As long as Dixon is selected, he will not spud it up often, he was injured in Q2. I have a feeling that laidler will only average 60-70 long term. Save your trades!!!!!

  14. Billy says:

    Who to play on field Dunstan or Aish?

    • MightyDonsFC says:

      Aish, no rockliff and for the saints joey and Hayes coming back into the side gonna make life tough for Dunstan to hold his spot in the guts

      • benisbill says:

        Have to disagree with this – after his first up performance surely it'd be unlikely he loses that inside role (especially to Montagna who is more outside).

        Plus Dunstan is playing the Giants, Aish is playing the Cats. One of those games is likely to more far more one-sided than the other.

      • Flazzwa says:

        Nope I too think he will keep his place as an inside mid, it’s the only way he will develop and that’s what the saints needs all their young guys to do.

  15. MATTHEW NISH says:

    Fellas, how are you boys, what to do about chrissie masten? if he fails again gonna bring in priddis?

  16. Cheese man says:

    Will be keeping my eye on forward rookies this week, currently have Rohan F6 and McDonough on the bench. With McDonough named emergency and his rohans crap performances so far I might trade both out and bring in Patton F6 and a cheaply for the bench , maybe impy or ambrose….all depending on this weeks performances . Not a very deep fwd rookie list this year .

    • throttlefinger says:

      Same thinking, Cheese. Part of me wants to rip off the bandaid and swap McDonough this week but know that's hasty thinking.

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      I have Macca as well, but I'm going to sit tight on him this week as there no standout fwd rookie, plus I think he will get more time down the track.

      • throttlefinger says:

        I hear ya but isn't that quite an investment of time just for someone there's no certainty will play any time soon? Especially at his cost.

        Leaning towards throwing Impey in because his value will rise at a rate that I can downgrade him for money to get prems. Sooner the better right, Gargles?

        • Sarah says:

          I'm contemplating the same thing. I don't want to have a player on the bench not playing when they're supposed to be earning me money. Just deciding who the best trade option is. Waiting on the teams to come out before making the final call.

          • throttlefinger says:

            Dimmawits kinda sold me on the idea, Sarah. Someone on Twitter suggested that he wait a week before offloading McDonough. His reply was to do this week because what if you need both trades next week.

            Trades will become more important next week. Think swapping McDonough out for Impey or Ambrose or McCarthy will prevent a headache later. And already using M. King in the rucks as my loop.

            • Sarah says:

              I'm definitely leaning towards trading. It's just a matter of who.

              If you could trade out Hanley and end up with Fyfe… would you?
              That's my conundrum that I'm dealing with at the moment.

              • throttlefinger says:

                Fyfe is a badass. So that's a no brainer.

                Question is how much is that going to weaken your backline?

                • Sarah says:

                  It would leave my backline with McV, Mitchell, Swallow and 5 rookies… Probably Langdon, Langford and Georgiou on the field, McD and Fuller on the bench.

                  Don't see too much of an issue with playing that many rookies in defence. It's just a matter of waiting on the teams and seeing where people are named before going through with the trade. If at least 3 of them are named on the field then that's probably good enough for me. Only have 4 midfield premo's so this would make it 5 which from what I can see is what most people are running with anyway.

            • Sarah says:

              See what I'm thinking at the moment is Hanley and McD out, Fuller and Fyfe in.

              Obviously depends if Fuller is named. Anyway, it's just an idea at this stage. May just end up doing rookie corrections and see where that leaves me next week.

              • throttlefinger says:

                Truly think both Hanley and McD had a bad first game. Luke's is definitely more excusable. 1st game, plus all the Roos stank it up. Hanley I think will do better.

                Your backline is uber strong. Just had a bad week. Do you already have Fuller in or looking to bring him in (i.e. you had "McD and Fuller on the bench")

                Regardless, I wouldn't touch that aspect. McDonough would be the only one. But as everyone likes to say, go with your gut. (which I agree with, by the way).

                • Sarah says:

                  I'd be bringing in Fuller for McDonough.
                  I'm sure Hanley will recover and score well and the only reason I'm considering trading him is because I feel I've left my midfield a little light, after having seen round 1, and would like to just throw another mid in there… Fyfe in particular. That would leave me with Ablett, Selwood, Watson, Fyfe and Beams. I think I can live with that midfield!!
                  Fuller is close to playing so I don't think it's too bad a trade. My gut has been telling me to trade Hanley all week for Fyfe, just had to figure out how and with McDonough not playing that gives me the required cash.

                  Hmmm… I'll let you know what I finally decide to do!

                  • throttlefinger says:

                    Please do!

                    Fuller is a Def. McDonough is a Fwd. How are you going to pull that off?

                    • Sarah says:

                      I unfortunately have Lewis Taylor on the midfield bench. It allows for the multi-line trades at least. Want to have another look at Impey, Ambrose and McCarthy before I get rid of him. He'll just sit on the forward line bench for a week if I do the swap.

                    • throttlefinger says:

                      Ahhh. Gotcha.

                    • Big Janks says:

                      I hate to say it Sarah- but this will be the week that Hanley goes off for 150. It always happens like that…

                    • Sarah says:

                      Ha, doubt it!!!
                      With Rockliff out, the Guthrie tag may fall to Hanley.

                  • Brett says:

                    Quote "Fuller is close to playing"
                    Have you got inside info?
                    I'm a Doggies supporter and I don't believe this.
                    Griffen will play this week so someone comes out for him – possibly Stringer or Dickson. Who would come out for Fuller?
                    I think he will have to prove himself in the VFL before he is considered.

                    • Sarah says:

                      I wouldn't say it's a given, but I read somewhere that he might come in for Goodes who was disappointing against the eagles. I'm waiting for the teams to be named, Fuller is the one I was naming to explain my trade strategy. If he isn't named, I'll grab someone who is.

                    • Brett says:

                      ok – understand now it was just a name – the statement that he was close caught my eye – I think it was mentioned on AFL.COM "Round 2 in the mix" – take that with a grain of salt.
                      Well my opinion is
                      Goodes won't get dropped just for one bad game (he wasn't the lone ranger).
                      If he does then Tom Young will come in.
                      but that is just my opinion.

                      anyhow – good luck with your selections

                    • Sarah says:

                      Thanks Brett, I appreciate your input and the info! Yeah, that's probably where I read it.
                      How's your team going so far?

                    • Brett says:

                      I can only say average – 2207 round 1
                      had Dunstan on bench didnt help and I rolled the dice with NicNat
                      can only improve.
                      Also had McDonough who I have just traded out to a mid pricer.
                      I'm hoping for at least a 100 point improvement this week

                    • Sarah says:

                      Yeah Nic Nat was a bit of a risk to start with but he will come good. You'll be glad you have him soon. I missed out on Langdon on the bench with his 111, but am pretty happy with my first up score of 2337. Just looking to shore up the midfield given there are a few more defence rookies than originally anticipated.

        • GarglesnarfFC says:

          Hmmm, it’s a good point Throttle. The problem is that Impey is highly likely to get dropped either this week or next, and you only save $40k. Imagine watching the team sheets next week and seeing McDonut in, Impey out. Or even tonights team sheet from Port with the OUTS being Impey and Clurey.

          Ambrose is shaping as an alternative, but again the JS is not great. Sam Frost at GWS looked good against the Swans and scored a 70, but he’s almost $200k (3rd year) and the Giants have about 10 first round draft picks all trying to steal his spot.

          I just cannot see another fwd rookie with decent job security.

          • Cheese Man says:

            If I trade Rohan + McDonough who are my F6 and 1bench , bring in Patton to F6 if he goes alright this week and wait to see which rookies are named for R3 , bring in the one that has the lowest BE and will rise the most, that way if they lose their spot in the team R4 I at least get 1price rise out of a very average fwd rookie list .

            I was lucky enough to get all my mid and back line rookies right, besides the fwd line and McDonald in back my lowest scoring rookie was 66 , so I shouldn't need any other corrective trades for the next few rounds barring injury , long term suspensions

  17. Ben says:

    daisy, i feel like i must do something this week as i feel i might have possible corrections next week.

    2 options…… not trading isnt one of them

    TU – Murphy/ Trelore
    TD – Shiels

  18. MightyDonsFC says:

    G'day fellas, just got a quick question here that's doing my head in.

    Rohan out for Caddy OR
    Michie out for Macrae

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    • mightymicks says:

      Tough call mate, I believe michie could get a lot more points than rohan, I would go rohan to caddy, michie has potential to ave maybe 80, while rohan is hardly any chance, as he just doesn't get enough of the ball and unless he kicked a bag of goals he will stay around the 50 mark. That's just my opinion mate, go with your gut.

      • MightyDonsFC says:

        Cheers for the quick reply!

        Was thinking the same thing, especially with Griff coming back it might push Macrae into more of a half forward role. Caddy could've broken the ton if he didn't give away a goal, Rohan was always crap sc wise and as you said michie could score 75-80… so Caddy in and Rohan out

  19. cyril is the man says:

    im keeping Rohan AND Michie for now

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      Good call CiTM.

      IMO Rohan is about the only viable rookie forward at the moment as he is the one guy with decent job security. The rest are highly speculative. McDonut is out, JKH is a likely out and Impey, while he played well, is also likely to go when more senoir players return. Sure he will probably average 60 but gives me sizeable return where there is currently sweet FA.

      MDFC
      If you are happy with a structure change, then by all means upgrade from a rookie to midpricer, just be careful you don’t restrict your cash making opportunities too much. FWIW I have both Caddy and Rohan. It’s JKH and McDonut that worry me (and Buddy!).

  20. throttlefinger says:

    Excellent report, BVC.

    Hedging Jobe VC and Pendles C. Considering Lids for VC given strong R1 and Cotch getting the heavy tag. Gave Boak problems but Blues couldn't stop anyone else.

  21. Brad says:

    Is it worth keeping dale Thomas for one more week?

  22. Cheese man says:

    Absolutely struggling to pick my captain this week, most of my loophole options are closed with ablett, beams, sandi, Barlow all playing at the same time. Only leaving Mitchell , danger and outside chance of treloar as VC options before all my guns play .

    Don't like Mitchell or dangers chances of posting big scores this week, ablett will have to deal with Crowley , at this stage I think it's a toss up between Barlow and beams for me , maybe throw the VC on danger just in case

  23. The Mullet says:

    Quite a bit of discussion about Daisy. I'm thinking I've made a tactical mistake selecting him. We could be a few weeks into the season before he has developed enough match fitness (and proven that ankle week in week out) to make some good scores. I don't regard him as a keeper this year anyway. Assuming I'm right, thoughts on trading Daisy out for Zorko either this week or next?

    • The Mullet says:

      OR……if Zorko is a bit too sideways…….I'm also trying to open up a spot for one of Langdon, Laidler or Langford. Which of the three would you choose?

      • Cheeseman says:

        I didn't see the other 2 games , but I saw Langdon and he looked very good, composed , and hit targets under pressure. Looked much better than a 1st year player

      • Dale says:

        I have traded him for Laidler Mullet, and pocketing the cash so I can trade up next week if I have to. Still worried I’ll miss the daisy resource boom, but I was worried about dropping Savage last week too!!

    • Big Janks says:

      Keep Daisy. If your theory is correct in regards to taking a few weeks to develop- then theoretically he will start putting up 85-100 by week 5 and if he can do that until week 9 (the bye) then you can make the upgrade to a week 8 gun coming off of their bye. Or- he could just ave 85+ moving forward and you just jump once he hits his BE. I'd wait

  24. GarglesnarfFC says:

    Langdon if trading this round, then see what happens with the other two next week.

  25. Big Janks says:

    Murphy or Cotchin as my VC tonight?

    I'm leaning towards Cotchin but according to BVC stats it should be Murphy with a career 112pts/game vs Richmond.

    Who would you guys choose?

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      I think the Tigers should win, so Cotchin but with minimal confidence. I’ve gone Danger as VC.

  26. Billy says:

    Hey guys could someone please tell me how I could trade for example McVeigh for Watts and then move Watts to my forward line for Franklin and then put Swallow in defence all in 1 trade. Please.

  27. Hazey says:

    Am I going mad….(well i must have been a little to start with NicNat)

    NicNat to Hampster
    McDonough to Lachie Hunter

    • PJ8 says:

      NicNat will be fine. He will end up averaging 100+. If you picked him first up stick with him. Personally I wouldn't of started with him as he seemed a bit under done but he will be one I will get in at some stage. As will others.

      Don't panic after Rd 1

  28. Derek says:

    Franklin against Collingwood without Reid. I'm going to put VC on Franklin and have C on StevieJ (against Bris)

    • PJ8 says:

      Different Derek. I like it. It won't be long until Buddy kicks 6 and Stevie J loves beating up on the struggling teams.

      • Derek says:

        I had StevieJ as C last week and at 3/4 time It was high 5's everywhere. Unfortunately he didn't do that much in the last quarter and only scored 116. He really has scored some massive points against the weaker teams.

        Franklin is worth a punt as VC. He knows he hasn't impressed yet and this his first game in Sydney (hopefully it will be dry as it has rained all week up here)

      • Super_Freak says:

        Just remember that "Struggling team" knocked the Cats off at the Gabba last year, and then was robbed of victory at the Cattery by a disgraceful umpiring decision in the dying seconds.

        Stevie J is a gun though and scores well against most sides.

  29. cyril says:

    Not a bad option. Buddy could explode against the pies

  30. MATTHEW NISH says:

    Fellas, how are you boys, what to do about chrissie masten? if he fails again gonna bring in priddis?

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      Hi Matt,

      Given you selected him over Priddis in the first place, why would you swap him out after one game? Priddis is a proven SC scorer and Masten had a good year last year. So you must have intel or a gut feel that Masten was this years improver, but a sideways like that is big risk.

      I would say stick with him for a few weeks, the 56 drops off in week four and his price will recover quickly if he starts pumping out 100’s. Dont burn a trade going sideways on a premo this early.

  31. Liam says:

    Guys…have shuey, savage, webster and Lobbe ALL with their heads on the block this week. Thoughts on who should go?? ATM leaning towards Shuey and webster and giving Savage and Lobbe the benefit of the doubt and one more week! West Coast website says shuey 'should' be right to play but my worry is 'if' he does play against a weaker a side he wont play much!

    • PJ8 says:

      Don't panic after one game mate. Give them all another chance.

    • Sarah says:

      If Webster is named leave him in your side. He was playing well before he was subbed off with groin tightness, so no need to jump ship there.
      I wouldn't jump ship on Shuey either. The rest is your call.

    • Kurt says:

      Between Webster and Savage Savage played like trash and Webster played okay, so Savage should be the first to go out of those two.

    • Cozza says:

      I'd definitely leave Shuey – looked good until he was subbed. Savage should improve as well – had a stinker last week

    • Liam says:

      Thanks for the replies guys (and girl), ive opted to trade shuey and hold the others. Not confident in shuey playing a decent game (if he plays at all). Could come back to bite me but I have the feeling that he is not 100% and wont be risked in this game, im already behind (thanks to the 4 players mentioned) so cant afford to play a low scoring rookie. Fingers xxx'd!! Hopefully lobbe can break 100 this week and Savage, well, hope he can break a sweat!!lol

  32. Derek says:

    shuey, webster and savage all have an easy game. gotta keep them.

  33. Cozza says:

    Is it too impatient to flick Buddy already? Thinking Buddy down to Matt Wright, and upgrading a rookie mid (Cunningham) to Macrae – have enough cash in kitty to get to Macrae

    • Derek says:

      way to early. I'm even putting my VC on Buddy this week. He has had some big scores against Collingwood who are without Reid.

      • Coffs Coast Slurry says:

        Hi Derek, id be hesitant in putting the VC on buddy simply because of the weather here atm! Going to be raining continuously through to sunday. We all saw how he (well the swans in general) played in the wet last week!

  34. Dools says:

    Hi Community, I have endured a week from hell, House was robbed and all electronics stolen…Insurance ran out 4 days before theft GUTTED….One a happier note…. Laaaaa! To day I 'm back on line OUT Daisey in Langdon Go Tigers make me Not regret this trade…Huh…Off to the fridge

    • GeneralSoreness says:

      That sucks Dools I hope the cops catch the bastards. More importantly I hope the trade pays off for you. Good news is that you still have a fridge to ensure that the celebration or misery of your trade will be accompanied by a cold beverage!

    • GarglesnarfFC says:

      I was about to complain about the Swans dropping Laidler. I won't now. Hope everything looks up Dools! Go Tiges!

      • Dools says:

        Thanks lads. Laider's dropping was a WTF from me so trying to ensure community I may have been kicked in the guts but the trench is 50M behind me and the annoying Machine Gun fire is trying to pin me down….Nope not to-fuc*ing day I charging!!!!
        Half time and I feel a short revival from the Blues, Daisy is stuffed 5 posi's I think. The day's where he had some players to help him out are gone. the blues methinks are the GWS of 2014 Hmmm All Carlton Players are out of me team.
        Sorry for the rant but at least I have next G with me

  35. Adam says:

    Why was Laidler dropped anyway?

  36. Jason says:

    Hey guys …..

    I had the VC on Murphy last night and he scored 121 . Should i take his as captain or go for one of the following :-

    Ablett , Liberatore , Beams , Sandilands or Dangerfield ?

  37. GarglesnarfFC says:

    Only Ablett is worth risking 121 for. He should score between 110-140, so your risking 10 points for a potential extra 10-20.

    I took Sandis 127 last week, only cost me 13pts and I was much less nervous after locking it in.

    This week Danger is VC and GAJ will have the C.

    If you’re risk taker, go GAJ.
